Sharpless: Madame Butterfly (New Zealand) @ Hannah Playhouse, Wellington
Nov 16 @ 6:00 am

Butterfly… Hannah Catrin Jones
Pinkerton… Boyd Owen
Sharpless… Kieran Rayner
Suzuki… Laura Loach

After their critically acclaimed debut production of “Don Giovanni” in 2016 and “The Marriage of Figaro” in 2017, Eternity Opera is returning with Puccini’s 1903 masterpiece “Madam Butterfly”.

“Madam Butterfly” follows a beautifully traced arc for the title character, from the young bride who renounces her religion to embrace all things American to the strong young mother who returns to her culture and the code of honor that governs her tragic destiny.

With gorgeous period costumes and designs, and featuring much of Puccini’s most lyrical music, including the Humming Chorus, Flower Duet, the stunning aria in “Un bel dì,” and a spine-tingling climax.

Performed in English by a lineup of top New Zealand singers, this will be directed by Alex Galvin and conducted by Matthew Ross, with support from the Eternity Chamber Orchestra.

We open our Christmas Weekend with Handel’s rousing and uplifting oratorio, a cornerstone of the festive season.

Come and enjoy it in the company of the hand-picked musicians of the Suffolk Ensemble, Aldeburgh Voices and soloists from the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme.

The Amazing Mr. Handel @ Snape Maltings
Mar 16 @ 7:30 pm

Handel Four Coronation Anthems
Suite in G ‘The Water Music’
Chandos Anthem No.9 O Praise ye the Lord
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness from Chandos Anthem No.4

Handel’s glorious anthems, commissioned for the coronation of King George ll and Queen Caroline in 1727, are bold and extrovert befitting the grandeur and importance of the occasion. They proved instantly popular and Zadok the Priest has been performed at every coronation since 1727. Suffolk Baroque Players play two of Handel’s most popular orchestral works including the Suite in G major, better known as The Water Music.

Kieran will perform as the baritone soloist.
